well, i am still enjoying the machines... the first drawing here is called "the circus truck parts ii", and shows the cleverness of this artist to put together an entire truck kitted out with rusty old tools and parts-turned art. they are almost little portraits of people that the artist must have known, or perhaps they just began looking like figures and faces to him.
the other drawing, "the hat and the cat" is a self-portrait with my kitty, atticus finch-de Shan (from gregory peck's character in "to kill a mockingbird). while i was in melbourne, i acquired this gorgeous top-hat from the oldest hatter in melbourne - they've been there since melbourne became a city! it was such a quaint little old shop too!
